I’m embarrassed to say that until a few minutes ago, I’d never heard of UN Watch. But not only does it exist, it participates at the UN as an accredited NGO. With glorious results, apparently.
Here’s the executive director, Hillel Neuer, going batshinola on the UN Human Rights Council at Friday’s session. The Council was formed last year to replace the UN Commission on Human Rights, which was consistently criticized as a power bloc for human-rights abusers and a bludgeon against Israel, Israel, and pretty much only Israel.
A lot’s changed since then, as you’re about to see.
Update: Guess which state the Human Rights Council recently decided to stop investigating.
